Canon PowerShot S5 IS


Yes! Finally the S5 is in my hands! ^_^ I have to say, for the price that I paid, this sure hell is a wonderful piece of photo shooting tech!

The last camera I used was an analog from my dad. The type that I have to actually buy film and manually load it up. And after the film is finished, I have to manually rewind the film, yes, there's a lever that I used to roll the film back into the film's cylindrical casing. I wonder does the kids nowadays still know what 'film' looks like. Lol

Now, those days are over! After years deprived of my own digicam, today, the power of 8 Mega-pixel, 12X optical zoom, Macro and manual focus is in my hands! and most important of all, the capacity to shoot shoot shoot and shoot more... photos!

Well, the technical specs are all on canon's website, so you can go over to check it out. Basically for now the 8 mega-pixel and macro will suffice for all my photo-shooting of the gundams models and anime figures.

The Buying Process
Well, I bought this at Foto Shangrila in Sungai Wang. The day when I went out to buy the S5, many shops ran out of stock. By the time me and my friends visited the 4th shop and there weren't any new stock, I was giving up hope to get it already. (They only had the demo unit, and they are selling that to me. Like I'm gonna buy the demo unit. =_=") But to my surprise, the Sg. Wang. outlet had a boxed unit. I thought: still wait for what, 5 5 buy liao lah. =D

So here it is, in my room, in my hands. Kyaaaa...!!! Just holding it makes my blood boil! The things I can do with this baby! >.< Ok ok, now that I am adequately equipped, watch this blog as I share (visually) as much as I can on as many things as possible in my life with you!
